This 12-kilometre fun run will see you race through the new Sydney Zoo.
Open to runners of all ages and abilities, RunWest will follow a 12-kilometre course, through several major landmarks. Its first incarnation was supposed to see runners race through the new Sydney Zoo, but that was delayed. Luckily, the zoo is now open — and you will be able to run through it, while waving at lions, rhinos and giraffes.
The 12-kilometre run starts at Sydney Motorsport Park, before traversing the new zoo, Western Sydney Parklands and winding up at West HQ. If 12 kilometres sounds too far, you conquer the more friendly four-kilometre Family Fun Run instead — but, that doesn't go through the zoo.
Either way, there'll be plenty of action to keep you on course. On crossing the finish line, you'll find the Finish Festival, an extravaganza of food trucks and live music to make you forget all about the pain of running you've just endured. The lineup hasn't been announced yet, but last year saw the likes of Chur Burger, Satay Brothers, Burnt Ends BBQ and Duo Duo Ice Cream all make appearances.
If you're a City2Surf regular, this might be a good race to enter in the off-season — although, being March, chances are the weather will be pretty warm. But, like City2Surf, you're encouraged to raise funds for a charity of your choice, so your sweat will be all worth it. If you're ready to commit, sign up right now at super early bird rates, which are $30 per person for the fun run and $45 for the 12-kilometre event.
